Brincar/brincarán


Explanation:
Realmente no sé de ninguna palabra equivalente en español. Generalmente lo pondría como "moverse dando brincos/saltitos". Pero este contexto pondría "saltarán y brincarán".

Utilzo brinco porque Wordreference lo define como "salto de poca altura".

skip
caminar dando saltitos


Explanation:
Como en español no tenemos palabras específicas para estos tipos de movimientos, creo que lo mejor es parafrasear. "Saltar" es una palabra general, la opción propuesta podría funcionar ya que skip is a small quick jump after each step (abajo está link).
El video explica bien la diferencia entre jump y skip
